Do you like (or liked) Lego, Ernst? I used to be a huge fan since 1994, when dad brought me my first set — 8818 Dune Buggy — from Germany, and up until 1999, when I bought my last set — 8204 Sky Flier. Then I started losing interest somewhat because of electronic entertainment like videogames becoming more popular, then Lego started to produce licensed themes like Star Wars which I've seen as betrayal and selling-out, and then Lego went into a direction which killed my interesting in it completely by introducing Bionicle, which didn't really fit either System or Technic (and I don't care what some people say, I still don't consider Bionicle a subtheme of Technic). So, I gave all my Lego to my cousin and for around twenty years I pretty much forgot about it. But a couple of months ago I went to my aunt's and found out that my cousin (who also got bored with Lego a couple of years after me) started getting back into Lego: he bought several new Technic sets (42093 Chevrolet Corvette, 42107 Ducati Panigale plus several smaller ones), and they impressed me quite a bit. Nostalgia hit me hard, and I started checking out new Lego myself out of curiosity. I found out that there are actually some new themes that are of interest to me, like Creator, Ideas and Architecture, and finally I gave in and bought this 31109 Pirate Ship.

So, Ernst, share your Lego stories if you have any, meanwhile I'll be building my ship and maybe post some photos. If this threda wouldn't be of interest to you, I'll just let it die and won't post about Lego anymore.

So, some moons ago I got all the stuff transported here and now I've started unpacking it...

I have started to sort all the manuals based on the series and date and I'm planning to assemble the stuff one series at a time to see if all the pieces are still there. Will post updates when I build something.

I wasn't sure were to post this as it didn't really fit into the today or documentary thread so I just started my own.
I've seen a fair few people post blogs on somewhat unrelated threads, and I thought it was a good idea if people just posted on this thread instead of unrelated threads.
Anyway, here is an interesting blogpost about environmental hypocrisy: https://www.ecosophia.net/the-flight-from-nature

Before anyone responds:

>Ecological Spirituality
>Magic
>Astrology
I agree that 90% of the site is stupid shit but sometimes the literal resident autist Mr. Greer gives pretty scathing critiques of so-called modern "environmentalists".

After the algorithmic stablecoin UST imploded last week (now $.09), more eyes have turned to Tether(USDT). Unlike UST, USDT is supposed to be backed with fiat and equivalent assets. The problem is they are not publicly audited. So, do they have the fiat to handle a mass redemption by users should that be necessary? Maybe, maybe not. Article from October 2021 gives a good rundown of the coin and the characters behind its creation.

tldr:

>The strange thing is that, at least for now, most participants in the crypto market, including some very large and sophisticated operators, don’t seem to care about any of the risks. Just last month, traders bought $3 billion in new Tethers, presumably sending billions of perfectly good U.S. dollars to the Inspector Gadget co-creator’s Bahamian bank in exchange for digital tokens conjured by the Mighty Ducks guy and run by executives who are targets of a U.S. criminal investigation.

Anyone Seen Tether’s Billions?

In three stages:

Stage 1: Nuclear War

Stage 2: Fallout

Stage 3: Nuclear Winter

Was surprised by the temperatures for Nuclear Winter, but I looked them up. An average drop by 20 Kelvin is to be expected. Temperatures in winter can drop to -80°C.

Estimated death toll within 10 months 500 million people.

You missed recent News, huh?

Koch Industries and Nestle won't leave Russia. Koch Industries is openly opposed to sanctions against Russia.

I have to reevaluate my opinion about Nestle. I will buy their products again. They are helping us right now prevent a nuclear war that the Clinton/Obama/Biden mafia wants.

I suppose they evaluate their long-term losses from leaving the market being higher, ultimately acting for their own profit. Still, it's nice. I am planning to ignore the rats leaving the Russian market now forever.

Only a few months left until the next radio birthday party, it's time to start wörkenings on Ernstalbum v2. Ernst just finished his first song, and he has a few more up his sleeve. The huge success of out first album last year raised the expectations of our loyal fans, so give them something to cheer on!

I do not say that you HAVE to participate, but if you don't I will dab on /int/ the whole show while presenting the album (see pic 3 for details). Anything goes which roughly fits the desription "song", it doesn't matter if it's serious or audio shitposting, just do whatever you want. If all goes well the album will be published during a live broadcast at our next birthday festival (likely the weekend Sep 2-4). You can post your songs in the thread or send them to me via mail (ernstiwan at protonmail ch - if you don't want to spoil anyone before the festival). In any case: Post if you have something ready even if you don't post the song itself in order to raise peer pressure :DD

One month left until the festival, and at the moment we need 3 more songs to fulfil the minimum number of required songs for an album (8). I heard that a few people are still planning to contribute, but you know how it is with plans. Guess we all planned to get a GF.

I suggest that if you have a song finished then send it via mail (see OP) instead of posting because it's not that much time between the post and the festival, so the effect is probably better now if we have a true premiere of your song during the stream, instead of having it here and then on stream again only a few weeks later.

Two weeks until the festival, and we are still one song short. If you have anything in your queue, it's time to apply the finishing touches. it would also be great to let me know if you will deliver something, because if I get one more song I could at least confirm the Ernstalbum stream for the festival. Any more songs after that will just slightly extend it, which is easier to handle. But knowing if it will happen at all obviously would be a big help.

In your language, what do you think is a weird combination of things that are called the same?

In German, both of these pictures show a Bremse, and I'm sure there are lots more to find if I start looking.

Using chinese would be cheating because it's full of homophones. But I know a rather interesting case:
燕 (yàn): hirundinidae
咽 (yàn): to take into the stomach through the throat. Written as 燕 in ancient chinese.
The interesting part is that english word swallow also has both meanings.

Could it be related? The bird gulping action is pretty eye catching. But verb swallow is from proto-germanic *swelgan/*swelhan while noun swallow is from proto-germanic *swalwon so it seems like a coincidence.

These aren't homonyms. The tones are different. They are as easy to tell apart for native speakers as different vowels or consonants. You may find tones mysterious but it's only because Russian language isn't tonal. Vietnamese, Laotian or Thai native speakers will find Mandarin tones very simple.
Tones aren't something special. Almost half of languages in WALS are tonal. And I'm sure there're tonal languages missing in their database, like Limburgian and Central Franconian. Tones are important partly because they encode grammatical information. I'll keep using the 咽 example: if it's pronounced yàn, it's a verb meaning "to swallow". If it's pronounced yān, it's a noun meaning "throat".

Should they be abolished? They wield immense power and are basically unelected antidemocratic power structures, which outlive elected officials. There is no control, they majorly fuck up all the time, e.g. in the case of terrorism either by looking away, getting caught with their pants down or even supporting them, like the NSU in Germany or Al Qaida in the US.

Then there are the military intelligence services, you always hear about the CIA, NSA, Mossad, BND or whatever, but basically every country has three branches of intelligence services: foreign, domestic and militaric. And theres almost never any good OSINT on them. Which makes you start to think what they (yeah) are doing.

If people would know what happens beyond the tidbits, which sometimes flow to the surface, I think there would be constant rioting for months. There is no way that they are compatible with a transparent democracy.

Pretty good docu series about intelligence agencies, the whole "deep state" complex and the crimes of the terrorist state of AmeriKKKa. Sometimes it's a bit too conspiraboomer aesthetically with some clumsy Adam Curtis imitations, but mostly rather grounded and well researched.

Hello mysterious raiding gentlemen.

Can you please raid britfa.gs instead? They actually deserve it for being humourless, stuck-up, boring gits.

Kind regards,
